50 Year Flashback - November 2, 1965

The Supremes make a HUGE leap into the #1 Spot this week on KHJ as "I Hear A Symphony" climbs from #15 to #1 in only its third week on the chart.  

Another big Top Ten mover would be the two-sided hit by The Yardbirds "I'm A Man" / "Still I'm Sad", up from #12 to #7 this week.

Other tracks climbing five or more places include "Let's Hang On" by The Four Seasons (#23 to #14), "Let Me Be" by The Turtles (the week's biggest mover, up to #15 from #27) and "My Heart Sings" by Mel Carter (#28 to #20).

The songwriting team of Lennon and McCartney can claim THREE of this week's Top 30 tracks with "Yesterday" (#5), "Help!" (still holding on at #30) and the Silkie version of "You've Got To Hide Your Love Away" (#27) from the same film.

Also of interest ... The Changin' Times' version of "Pied Piper", charting here a good six months before the Crispian St. Peters version became the big national hit.
